Smith + Wollensky – steak perfection, New York

Smith & Wollensky on Urbanspoon

“One of the most trafficked restaurants in New York and among the most celebrated steakhouses in the world” – so says Smith + Wollensky’s website.

I was delighted to eat here on this visit to New York (my attempt failed last time – unsurprisingly – with a vegetarian friend!). And even more delighted that it fulfilled my expectations after a three year build-up. Hopefully, the photo below (courtesy of theanorak) shows the quality of the steak cuts and preparation. Outstanding.

Lardbutty restaurant of the week: Smith & Wollensky

Fillet and sirloin steak

While Smith & Wollensky might fall into the premium restaurant bracket, it feels very comfortably down to earth with it’s cosy bars and friendly, efficient service.
